Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Regarding Lighting...

James Paulding was always pushing the lighting if I remember rightly. Unfortunately he is no longer at the resort. Could this be an answer?

Take That - Could It Be Magic

I remember sitting in the old Cred Street magic show theatre and they must have played this track at some point. Back in 1995. MAGIC!

Re: BBC Television Centre

To be honest, the building does feel terribly dated inside, with exception of the reception and relatively new news wing of the building.

Not really the best image for the UKs top broadcaster.

Re: 2011: The Honest Truth

It does appear that the park has stopped caring for their customers and that quality is being lost somewhere along the line.

Considering that Alton Towers is meant to be one of the best Resorts in the world, it does appear that they're not living up to their title this year.

Re: Alton Vs Thorpe Roller Coaster Themeing

I would say that the surroundings and landscaping of AT blow Thorpe out of it water that it floats on.


One thing I really miss from both parks is 'real themeing'.

Re: The annual car park price hike. 2011 edition.

Can you still get FREE parking if you stay behind for a couple of hours after the park closes?


We went for drinks at the hotel after Halloween a few years back and all the barriers were up 2 or 3 hours later?

Who is up for buying a field next to the Entrance and charging £2 per a car?

I don't think there is any joke with the crowds comment - Just the journalist writing trying to make it seem more interesting than it actually was.

Awesome! The Black Eyed Peas are not only huge in the UK, but the US too.

You can't deny that they have brought out some actual killer catchy tunes!

I think if the resort are to push boundaries in the future - some sort of interactive adventure playground is needed, remember the Temple concepts?

Re: Map for The Gardens

An attraction NEEDS to be made of the gardens, not just a map. Surely the Eden project has proved that flowers/plants can be interesting? IMO, The Resort needs to restore the features that currently exist and add modern twist. Features have been added for centuries, why stop now? The place is slowly...
